Yes you can. But it wouldn't be $200 off unless you want to say you paid full price for the tv :\
120hz EFFECTIVE refresh rate = 60hz except when interlaced, right?
The most viable info i found (Its from 2013) :
Fake refresh rates: Is your TV really 120Hz?
excerpt concerning Vizio in particular towards 2013 models:
"SPS (Scenes Per Second) combines advanced 120Hz technology with scanning backlight for enhanced detail." In other words, a "240Hz SPS" is a 120Hz TV with a scanning backlight. On the Web site, the company says things like "240Hz Effective Refresh Rate," "120Hz Effective Refresh Rate," and "Enhanced with smooth motion and backlight scanning for amazing sharpness," so it's being fairly upfront about what's going on...sort of. Here's what David found out with this year's E420i-A1: "Vizio actually uses the term '120Hz effective refresh rate' on this and other TVs, including the E601i-A3. But while that set has the smoothing and motion resolution we expect from a 120Hz TV, the E0i-A1 series has neither. That's why we're sticking with the '60Hz' specification on the table above, despite what Vizio says." In other words, Vizio has two TVs, both labeled with "120Hz effective refresh rate," but one is a 60Hz panel with backlight scanning and the other is a true 120Hz panel.
